Suspects arrested in shooting incident
By SUE WATSON
Marshall County investigators made two arrests in connection with a disturbance in the 3500 block of Bethlehem Road Sunday, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
A call was made to 911 around 10:15 p.m., but when officers arrived suspects had left the scene. Shortly after deputies left, 911 received a call reporting gunshots at the house at the same address.
When deputies arrived the second time they got information from the victims on possible suspects, the sheriff said. Officers located two suspects on Barber Road.
A .30-.30 rifle, thought to have been used in the shooting into the residence, was also recovered.
Michael Shane Westmoreland, 27, of Frayser Lane in Potts Camp, was arrested and charged with one count of burglary and three counts of aggravated assault, Dickerson said. He is in jail under $200,000 bond.
Bradley Neil Johnson, 22, of the 2900 block of Potts Camp Road, was also arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit a crime and is currently out on bond, he said.
In a separate case, investigators continue to seek leads and information that would lead to the arrest of suspect(s) in an aggravated assault-arson incident at 321 Hurdle Club Road April 11. Charles Hardeman, a Byers High School junior, remains in stable but critical condition at The Med in Memphis, Tenn.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to call investigators at 662-252-1311. Callers may remain anonymous. Their identities will be kept in strict confidence.
